This dirt cheap Qi smartphone charger costs less than a standard chargerOn December 2, 2017 by Maybell
When it comes to introducing new technologies to the mainstream, Apple often leads the pack: touchscreen phones, Wi-Fi, mice with no buttons. But sometimes, Apple forgets to innovate and falls behind: big screen phones, streaming music, reasonable prices.
Fortunately, after years of sitting on the sidelines, Apple has finally stepped up to the plate and embraced one of its most glaring omissions: wireless charging. All of the new iPhones – the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus – can now be charged wirelessly with a Qi charging pad such as the Mini Qi Wireless Charging Pad.
This charging pad is dead simple: just place your iPhone on top of it and your iPhone charges. (Bonus: it also works with all Qi-compatible Androids such as the Samsung Galaxy S8.) You don’t have to blindly fumble in the dark for that stray charging cable anymore. Just leave your iPhone on top of this magical pad and get back to more important things.
